TORONTO - The request for proposals stage has closed for prequalified teams to submit bids to build and finance Sinai Health System's redevelopment project at Mount Sinai Hospital. 

Following a fair, open and transparent request for qualifications process, four prequalified teams were invited to respond to a request for proposals in June 2016. Two teams - EllisDon Capital Inc., and Walsh Canada have submitted bids.

The project is a large-scale renovation of several key areas of Mount Sinai Hospital, including:

  • redevelopment of the Critical Care Unit
  • expansion and redesign of the Emergency Department, Operating Rooms and Surgical Services
  • increased Medical/Surgery inpatient capacity
  • redesign of some of the ambulatory care areas
  • redevelopment of a full-service, in-house Medical Devices Reprocessing Department

IO and Sinai Health System will now evaluate the bids and select the successful bidder. The winning bidder is expected to be announced in spring 2017, with construction scheduled to follow shortly thereafter. 

IO and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Sinai Health System to renovate the facility, which will remain publicly owned, controlled and accountable.
